Names

The paper money is called "brix". The coins are called "peels".

Use

Outside being the official currency of Citrico Archipelago, these bills and coins will mostly be found South of Mew York. Merchants tend to trade them out for local currency because most central and northern cities and towns of Owel do not have the appropriate anti-counterfeit batons for Citrico's currency — which is a shame, because it's actually quite difficult to counterfeit.

Anti-counterfeit features

Citrico currency has a "scratch and sniff" implemented so that if each bill doesn't give off a specific smell, it's a fake.
Aside from that, a specific magic baton (that merchants can buy) is able to detect if exact levels of magic are present that determine if the bill is real or not. The coins aren't imbued with magic, but they do each have a smell of their own.
It's not profitable to counterfeit the coins. Those are textured in a specific way based on the tree fibers that are worked into the coins.
Though not recommended as a way to check for fakes, the currency all has a specific, pleasant taste due to the delicious, magical dyes used.
